A FINE REGENCY BREAKFRONT CABINET ATTRIBUTED TO GEORGE OAKLEY, the centre cupboard flanked by recessed adjustable shelves, divided by tapering  pilasters inlaid with broad strips of brass, further inlaid with brass stringing and standing on original ormolu claw feet.

 The attribution to Oakley is based on his documented work for J.H.Leigh of Stonleigh Abbey, Warwickshire, including side cabinets sharing this identical form of pilaster and gilt claw feet (vide Christies, April 2009,2006)
